Everything feels like a game. We can’t get completely relieved after the school exams, which had just finished yesterday. They were like the semi-final boss that sets the minor subjects aside. They also lessens our burden before dealing with our masterful enemy on the last stage—no other than the national exams! I should have written the title this way:
Coming soon: the four final boss.
Hang on. So two months of keeping myself away from VBA and the other games (for exams sake, definitely) don’t keep myself off from my game-based paradigm, do they? Am I suffering from “gamesickness”?
All right, all right, no more silly thoughts… At least we’re free from those minor subjects now. Starting on Monday we’re going to study only the four major subjects: Indonesian, English, Maths and Science. And day by day, week by week, time will eventually bring us to the end.
To describe my feelings now, I’m right between independence and restlessness. Kind of glad to have only four subjects for one month ahead, as I love all those subjects. Yet the restlessness refers to the natural feeling I have every year, when I’m to proceed the next level. It somehow utters, “Congratulations, dear. You’re getting bigger now. Say farewell to your beloved class!” I personally can’t accept that, but I have to.
I can still remember my first time in 9B—the first time we gathered together as a class. Still quite unfamiliar with the classmates, I wondered, How will things turn out this year? Funny to think that everything is different now.
To all ninth graders, let’s unleash our power for the very final boss!
